ovlaunch.exe HTTP error 404


ovlaunch.exe HTTP error 404

Openview Problem: They suggested I place this in your form.

When I click on the menu selection under tools it opens the IE 5.0 and gives me
the HTTP 404 error. I have tried everything in the book but nothing works. I
still get the message:
HTTP 404 - File not found.

The directory is shared and I do have the remote console working with no
problem. If I can see the maps on my PC but I get the launch error on both the
server and the console. I read the MS Technet database but nothing helped there

Can anyone help?

Re: ovlaunch.exe HTTP error 404

Hello Al,

I think I know what the problem might be here. Are you trying to get to the
web page by "Web Browser" -> "Management Page"?

After you get the error in your browser, go up to the URL and remove the last /
in the address and press return. That should bring up the page for you. The
extra "/" is causing a problem.

Please let us know if this fixes the problem. If so, this has been reported to
the HP labs and will hopefully be fixed soon.

Some web browsers/implementations can deal with the extra slash and some can't.

Good luck,

There is no "/" to remove! The program generated URL is:

The openview directory on the server has been set to allow access by anyone.
the program does exist in that directory but the above URL is not enough fo it
to find it.
